I am a postdoc in the Laboratory of Lloyd Greene at Columbia University, having just finished my PhD in the lab. A wide spectrum of topics and problems interest me but my work lately has been centered around combinatorial transcription factor expression and its role on cell fate selection in neural differentiation. OpenWetWare caught my attention in a writeup on DIY, howebrew biology in New Scientist magazine.
